Yo Yo Honey Singh has bounced back to making music after a long gap. His fans missed him a lot and waited for the singer-actor to get well soon. Honey Singh took a break from music for a while citing health issues. During an interview with PinkVilla, Honey Singh opened up on his battle with depression and the darkest phase of his life.
“It was a terrible phase for me. A lot was going on with my mental well being. I had become an alcoholic as well. I used to not sleep so the disease started growing slowly inside me. It took me 3-4 months to accept that I’m actually not well,” Yo Yo Honey Singh told Pinkvilla. He urged people to not shy away from it and instead speak openly about it. “It was a dark phase and I would request everyone to not hide it. Especially, an artists is like a mirror for an audience. When we can share every bit of our lives, why not this? People asked me where I had disappeared for two and a half years. So then I felt it’s important to speak up,” singer told the portal.
He revealed how Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan reached out to help him. “The entire family and friends took care of me. In fact, there are many people from the industry who supported me. Shah Rukh bhai and Deepika Padukone helped me and since Deepika has also been through a similar phase, so she shared a Delhi based doctor’s number with my family for me. They all prayed for me to get well,” he added.
